“The course is laid out with a good flow making it easy to understand the operations from concept to forecasting, then moving on to purchasing/receiving and into managing the actual costs. I believe this makes it much easier for managers with little understanding or previous experience to quickly learn the concepts of each task and the necessity they each play in a successful operation.”
